In its second year at Henley-On-Thames (2010), the festival grew to capacity at 40,000 people and was broadcast for the first time on Sky Arts television.

2011 is the first year the organisers have confirmed a Scottish version of the festival. The all-star 80s line-up will perform at the historic setting of Scone Palace in Perthshire; the home of The Earls of Mansfield and the crowning palace of the Kings of Scotland. In addition to the massive line-up of 80s talent, the festival will include loads of other festival fun from Silent Discos to Live Karaoke bars along with Camping and Glamping (Glamorous Camping) options.
